Silent Screams
The drones can't hear the groans of people dying on the ground... do we?

About Us
Silent Screams is a carefully calibrated broadside aimed directly at the ignorance, disinformation, crimes, and excesses that characterize the U.S. government's so-called Global War on Terror, re-branded by the Obama administration as Overseas Contingency Operations.

Michael Gillespie, Contributing Editor, The Independent Monitor
One of the most powerful messages in Silent Screams, is that life goes on even in war zones -- marriages, births, schooling, housekeeping, and all of the things that should make for a good life.

Kathryn Koob, former U.S. hostage in Iran

On the third night of a seven week stay in Iran in a tiny Kurdish village neat the Afghan border, Karla Hansen, a social worker and peace activist from Iowa, woke in a startle from a dream of disturbing visions of unmanned U.S. aircraft, called drones, bombing the engagement celebration which she and her Iranian husband had attended just a few hours earlier. This gripping new documentary film deftly interweaves the lives of Iranian, Afghani and Pakistani villagers with the hardships of countless Americans whose vital needs remain unmet as a result of America's spiraling military spending. In 35 minutes, Silent Screams echoes the desperation of victims around the globe without a voice, and examines the crucial question "What is real security?"
